A Color Test That Can Tell Your Mental Age: How Old Is Your Brain?

Last updated on

How old are you? We know – it’s not always polite to ask someone their age. But did you know there is actually more than one way to answer that question? In fact, there are three types of age. Chronological age – refers to the number of years you’ve been alive (i.e., the answer almost everyone gives). Biological age – refers to how old your body feels. Lastly, mental age – refers to how old your brain feels.

Some of you are believers that age is merely a number for the very reasons we just mentioned. You could be younger yet feel older and vice versa. But of all three types of ages, one of them is harder to pinpoint: mental age. So, we’ve put together a quick visual test to help you figure out how old your brain really is. Personality tests are always a fun way to take a little break during a hectic workday. While we may not always agree with the results, it’s still fun to share our results with others and compare!


Do You Really Know Your Mental Age?

All you have to do is choose an answer and add up all the “years” to learn the age of your brain. Let’s get started!

1) Where are your eyes drawn first?

  • Black (1)
  • Reddish-Orange (3)
  • Peach (5)
  • Light Blue (6)
  • Navy blue (7)

2) Which color is the brightest?

  • Amber (10)
  • Pink (3)
  • Purple (6)
  • Yellow (2)
  • Blue (8)

3) What direction is the woman looking?

  • To her right (3)
  • Right at you (8)

4) Is this photo black and white?

  • Yes (0)
  • No (5)

5) Are these two photos the same?

  • Yes (10)
  • No (5)

6) Choose a shade

  • One (3)
  • Two (4)
  • Three (6)
  • Four (8)
  • Five (10)

So, How Old Are You Really?

Go ahead and add up all the “years” you got and check your mental age out below!

If you got 15 or less, your mental age is 20-years-old and under. At heart, you’re a care-free teenager regardless of the year you were born.

If you got 16 to 24, your mental age is 21 to 29-years-old. Technically, you’re an adult but you are still feeling active, creative, and full of life!

If you got 25 to 34, your mental age is 30- to 40-years old. You’ve lived a little and know the true meaning of responsibility. But you still love learning new things!

If you got 35 to 44, your mental age is 41 to 50-years-old. You’re more mature than you know and don’t get caught up in the trivial riff raff that troubles the average person.

If you got 45 to 50, you mental age is 50-years-old and over. You’re ageing gracefully and love to share wisdom with the people around you. You know how to appreciate the simple things and life’s little comforts.

Personality tests are always a fun way to take a little break during a hectic workday. While we may not always agree with the results, it’s still fun to share them with others and compare!
